Innovative Health and Wellness

At Innovative Health and Wellness, we provide premium chiropractic services throughout Orange County and serve all cities in the OC including Garden Grove, Santa Ana, Westminster, Fountain Valley, and Huntington Beach. We use a combination of chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy, and Active Release Techniques (ART) to aid in the healing of musculoskeletal injuries. As a distinguished Garden Grove chiropractor and a certified ART provider, Dr. Cris Barkmeier is dedicated to getting to the root of the injury, fixing it in a timely manner, and giving you the tools to prevent further injury.

Along with the physical, hands on treatment that you receive, we enjoy evaluating your diet, exercise and stress levels. As Doc Cris commonly says to his patients, “Your health is dynamic, it is a combination of factors that are the path to a healthy lifestyle.” Many of our patients are amazed at the quick results attained by the combination of our services.

We specialize in the treatment of:
  • Sports injuries (joint pain, sprains/strains, muscle tightness, pinched nerves etc.)
  • Work injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, repetitive stress injuries, etc.)
  • Motor vehicle accidents (whiplash/neck pain, back pain, disc problems, etc.)
  • Acute and chronic conditions (arthritis, headaches, fibromyalgia, TMJ, etc.)
